Renting, in general, has usually been seen as “money down the drain.” It has been given the stigma of a poor overall decision and sometimes this is the case. In the medical industry there are a few things to consider before leaving the idea behind and rush to purchase equipment to fulfill your needs.
Temporary Needs: There may be instances when the need for healthcare services peaks. This could be due to unusually high population (large events, winter migrations, etc). Also, in times of crisis (Pandemics, etc) this can be a perfect option for a short term surge.
Verifying Need: Medical Equipment purchases are usually large investments that must be thought through with care. Not only in terms of initial investment but also functionality, consumables, brand trust, repair service and maintenance. Medical equipment rentals can be seen as a test run to see if the equipment perceived as “needed” is truly required.
Test Cases / Unique Procedures: It’s possible that your facility may have a surgeon that will be doing a few specialized procedures that require a specific medical equipment rental. Why purchase an item only for it to sit for months after without being used? Renting makes perfect sense in this scenario.
Let’s explain in more detail:
- Functionality: It may seem self explanatory but when renting/buying a piece of equipment it is important make sure to limit the functions to what is needed, as much as possible. It is nice to have a cutting edge device, but is the price really worth having extra features that won’t ever be used?
- Consumables: Not everything requires a consumable or disposable to operate but it is an important aspect when making a decision between options or at least a good number to keep in mind before committing. Think about it as you would an ink jet printer. Is it worth buying a good quality printer, but each ink color is worth more than the whole printer? This comparison is much the same.
Brand Trust: Venture Medical only offers rental equipment from trusted manufacturer’s like Stryker, Steris, Hausted, Hill Rom, Medtronic, Physio Control, Zoll, Hospira, Baxter, and more. There are a few brands that we are more comfortable than other. Being able to rely on a brand with a good track record is something to consider and it can cause the scale to tip in one direction or another when making a comparison, sometimes even above money.
Repair Service and Maintenance: This is extremely important for rentals. The equipment must be tested thoroughly and certified for safe use prior to operation, which Venture Medical ensures. Also, having the confidence that if the equipment fails or malfunctions, it will get serviced by a professional technician and reduce your down time to a minimum, or a replacement will be sent.
